LED LIGHT THERAPY
Duration of Results
What is it?
LED (Light Emitting Diode) is a treatment where different wavelengths of light are able to penetrate the skin and provide benefits for varying skin concerns. Shorter wavelengths are able treat the superficial layers of skin and and longer wavelengths penetrate the deeper layers.
The skin has an amazing ability to absorb light energy. It converts this energy to stimulate collagen production, synthesise elastin, kill bacteria, regulate the production of melanin (pigment), and speed up the healing process. Clever hey! Light therapy is clinically proven and medically recognised. It offers many therapeutic benefits that are non-invasive, safe and have instant results. LED light therapy is able to treat many skin conditions and it is a great standalone treatment or perfect for an "add on" to any of our facial treatments.
LED Light Therapy is perfect for treating skin conditions such as Acne, Rosacea and aging skin, it even has benefits for people from SAD. For a non invasive treatment with zero downtime, it's an essential part of our clinic.
Let's talk science.
LED Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) therapy activates cellular metabolism and energy, assisting the production of collagen and elastin synthesis by increasing ATP synthesis and metabolising the fibroblast cells. Photo-modulation emulates photosynthesis in human skin cells, using the cell’s own cytochromes to build new proteins just as plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into structural building blocks. Low wattage light is directed through the skin’s epidermis and aimed at fibroblast cells, which produce collagen and elastin. The light stimulates the cell’s own energy transport system, therefore helping to stimulate and renew the skin.
Different wavelengths have different chromophores (colours) and can have various effects on tissue. Wavelengths are often referred to using their associated colour as seen in the diagram.
